Stoke boss raises question about stadium surface

hughes-mark-stoke_3383943Stoke boss Mark Hughes raised a big question about the London Stadium playing surface in his post match assessment.

The Potters boss made it clear it wasn’t the best and may have gone some way towards explaining why we have looked so laborious and laboured at the place this season.

Hughes said: “We felt we went behind against the run of play but we responded in the right manner.

It’s difficult to play on this pitch. It’s slow and we had to change how we played a little bit.

“A lot was made of our so-called difficult start. We have come up against decent teams and haven’t quite hit our levels.

“But we are now fully into our stride and where we want to be.”

  1. Well I never! Now the playing surface is as sh**e as the rest of the stadium. Well done Hughes for spotting another negative which had clearly passed everyone else by. Just a pity we didn’t think of it first really! Could have explained a lot.

    • Lol Jimbo… you’re spot on… the LS is described as a cursed place… the next story will be about toilets that don’t work well… haha 😀
